American 420

Not easy going green

South Carolina has never been one of America's most progressive states. When we do move, it's slowly forward — and admittedly, sometimes backwards. But there's hope on the horizon, at least when it comes to the issue of marijuana. In 2014 a new law was passed allowing for cannabidiol, a marijuana-based drug, to be used in specific cases. Sadly, a much broader medical marijuana bill failed this past year. Sigh. Regardless, South Carolina is finally beginning to take its first steps toward full-on recreational marijuana legalization. That day is inevitable. It's not a matter of if, but when. And seeing how this issue comes out on 4/20, well, we couldn't avoid taking a special look at that special bud. Enjoy.
